, then back to ohio, this huge battleground state where the columbus dispatch puts the president just two points ahead. so, as you talk about the fact that the obama campaign has done a good job of trying to disqualify mitt romney as a candidate, the american people see him as a viable choice. >> this is a very close election. you can compare it to 2004, no doubt about it, but there is a real force that has been out there for four years against the president. there's been a narrative in the tea party real m, that the economy isn't good. there's a lot of information voters out there, a lot of head shakers that aren't convinced. the dislike of the president is the best thing he's got going for him. the president did win 66 of the vote four years ago. wisconsin has become -- the gop than they expected. >> ryan has failed to deliver positive polling in wisconsin since he's been on the ticket. mitt romney, his campaign has not had any momentum in wisconsin to the point where they had ab ahead in any of the polls. said they were going to vote r for president obama, i don't see the romney campai

-bye columbus, zuckerman outbound, the human stain, and i read most of them. in a three our sit down with "the new york times," roth provides fascinating insight into writing fiction. he said i knew i wasn't going to get another good idea, or if i did, i'd have to slave over it. i know i'm not going to write as well as i used to. i no longer have the stamina to endure the frustration. writing is frustration, daily frustration, not to mention u mill agency. it is like baseball, you fail two-thirds of the time. i can't face any more days when i write five pages and throw them away. i can't do that any more. boy do i know that feeling. writing and good writing involves going to the keyboard again and again. >> i think i write as publish as often as i can bear being without a book to work on, but routinely when i finish a book, i think what will i do? where will i get an idea? and a kind of low level panic sets in. and then eventually something happens. if i knew how it happened, i would repeat the process, but i don't know, something just occurs to me. >> but now he's done, roth is spending his t

that columbus area. guest: columbus the state capital is where the ohio state is, that has become the key swing area of the state. it is growing. it has younger voters. it is a fluent. it is in an area that the previous bush's had one. but president obama made it flipped and took it by several percentage points. i think you are seeing a lot of attention in going there. this weekend, president obama will be finishing topping off his ohio campaigning in central ohio. in the past tv of cycles, we have seen the democratic candidate come up in northeast ohio and try to make that pushed. i think he is comfortable with the get out to vote efforts. he ought to go down -- he has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensive to campaign here. in gubernatorial races and some presidential r

. that will be at noon eastern. she's speaking with supporters in columbus, ohio. live today at noon here on c-span. president obama yesterday spent the afternoon with new jersey governor chris christi touring the damage across the state's coast left from hurricane sandy after surveying some of the wreckage and speaking with victims of the storm. both men spoke briefly about the coordination efforts between federal and local officials. >> good afternoon, everybody. thank you-all for coming today. i want to thank the members who are here as well. i want to thank the president. we spent significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. then going over to the shelter here, to be able to meet with folks, have them see the president and his concern. the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. the things we need to do
is in blue and the solid republican part is in red. >> the central part of ohio, which is columbus, the state capital. that has become the key swing area of the state. is growing and it has younger voters and it is affluent. is an area that the previous busches have one but president obama made a flip and ticket by a couple of percentage points which was key to his victory. you are seeing a lot of attention going there. this weekend, president obama will be finishing topping off his ohio campaigning in central ohio. in the past two cycles, we've seen the democrats coming up east of ohio and make that push. he is comfortable with the get- out-the-vote efforts here. he has to go down and appeal to what is considered the swing area with more independent voters and you have this educated, affluent group, the base hit around ohio state university, and that has been critical. if you show that map, you will see ohio is broken up into five ohio's. it's a very expensive state because of those five areas and some of the border areas. we have about 70 markets and that makes it very expensive to campaign
it on current tv. host: ron from columbus georgia, independent line. caller: good morning. i do agree with your comment about campaign is over, let's govern. but i am a veteran and i've been a company commander and my point is is this, i cannot call my boss and say i cannot get my company commanders to agree on how to accomplish a commission. i won't be a company commander very long. here's the point, the american people are the boss. there should be a law that's presented to congress that says from mr. president on down to congress, if you cannot solve the country's problems you need to go. it's just that simple. americans are sick and tired of the partisan politics and we just don't see the greatest country in the world moving forward the way it's supposed to be. and it's because you've got these guys playing partisan congress. there should not be a republican or democrat, it should be america's party after you're elected to congress. guest: i agree with the principle but we have the means in place if we use it and that's an election. every two years members of the house of represent ives are
, with the potential to go to law school. i think romney lost a lot of people in columbus because of that 47%,. >> i am really upset. i cannot believe we again got mr. obama into the white house. i am a nurse. it has been hard in the lower rio grande valley finding a job for a lot of nurses. i feel like patients are not being seen, and so forth, due to to lot of medicare cuts. you see it. yet you go to the groceries and see ladies with their michael korda's purses -- kors purses, and they pay with their lone star card. >> i am shocked and dismayed how this man could have won again. the election -- so many people are out of work. i am an executive in this community who lost his job, who was able to find a job. there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with obama, with our troops and with our embassy -- i think he handled it improperly. i would not be surprised that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale, because there i
of the economy. host: columbus, indiana, independent scholar. guest: how are things in bartholomew county? caller: they are great. are among social security. i do not live above my means. -- i am awed social security. they would rather reform taxes for people working here from foreign countries. maybe it would help us get our economy back on track again. guest: reform taxes for people here from foreign countries? host: taxing them more, i assume? guest: i think that's a fairly small percentage of the american workforce, foreign nationals. referring to people in the country illegally would be something else. look. we need to take a complete look at the tax code and i think congress will be doing that. how to restructure this in ways to help the economy grow? that is the biggest challenge right now. it's a very competitive world out there. the population is aging and we are not creating enough jobs and investment. what can we do with the 10,000 page tax code to make it easier to hire people come to invest, and grow the economy? two, there are certain things we have to pay for, social security, nati
, and in columbus, ohio in that time period, there were negative ads, almost all negative, quite effective, about bain, the auto industry bailout, and they were, you know, about policy proposals that were mischaracterizing mitt romney's policy proposals, but effective. that he would raise taxes on middle class for instance. we can't forget it was not a level playing field until really the very end, until after the convention when the general election funds were available to mitt romney which he needed to respond. we were not in all the markets in ohio. we were being outspent, and so that has a cumulative effect. it's difficult. i chaired ohio, and i'm too focused on ohio, but the same is true in the other swing states. it's tough to come back from there, but back to your question about, you know, how do you take policy issues and translate the way people care about? i think it's a huge challenge for us, and, again, i would suggest a loft people in the room share that challenge to the extent of forgetting partisanship here that you believe in policies that lead to economic growth, more jobs, and i
to the u.s. it's possible you could see the end of the arab spring at that conference held at columbus university in 2008. there's a matter of the public diplomacy people coming into the state department are often shunted off into consular work for eight years or whatever, for a long time before the ever get to any public diplomacy were. it's as though you're in the military and call your officers and send them off to, i don't know, do social work and then suddenly brought them back and said now you're in charge of the squadron. well anyway, but -- >> well, thank you, ambassador. and by the way, as far as the arab spring is concerned, i know that i was personally accused by some right wing bloggers having omitted the arab spring but i wish it were true, because of this event. although the event enabled me to do. the thing that was most fun of all of all the things that it did when i was undersecretary, which was that i got to call on the egyptian ambassador. i don't know if you really does, and made them come to my office and dressing gown which is sort of a great thing you can do trad
